It’s that time of year again for the crazy ComFest, which will be held June 28-30, 2019! Comfest is a volunteer-run Community Festival held in Goodale Park featuring several stages of local music, activism, arts, crafts, food and drink vendors.
They always need volunteers for many different areas, so if you are interested in doing a short shift (usually 4 hours), sign up on the website. Check out the Performance and Workshop schedules in the Program Guide once its posted.
Support this community-driven festival by showing up and being a part of it all. Parking is a pain, so if you can, ride your bike or take the COTA. Don’t forget that you can park anywhere along the COTA CBUS Circulator line and catch a ride for free! Say it again for the people in the back – parking is a pain down here! Many areas are permitted parking, and they will tow. If you plan to drive, carpool, and plan to park in the Arena Distict and walk.
If you’ve never been to Comfest before…be aware that everything goes. No shirt, no shoes, no problem – so you also want to consider this if you’re bringing your kids and if that would concern you. Parents can get a wristband at KiDSART or Safety Base Station and write a parents cell number on it so we can quickly reunite lost kids with parents.
The music performances are great and the beer lines are sometimes long. The people watching is FANTASTIC. Coolers and bags are searched (its illegal to BYOB to city parks), bring a blanket (chairs if it has rained recently), and an open mind because when it says community, it really means ALL community.
